Catholic Doctrine: Fetuses Are Precious Pre-Born Gifts from God Unless It Will Cost Us Money, In Which Case They Aren't

In the name of having their self-righteous cake and eating it too, a Catholic hospital has achieved new heights in mind-bending legal and moral contortions by arguing in a Colorado lawsuit they are not responsible for the deaths, along with their mother, of two viable seven-month-old twin fetuses because the unborn children aren't "persons" under a state law whose Wrongful Death Act "encompasses only individuals born alive." This, from Catholic Health Initiatives, the nation's second-largest faith-based health system with 170 health facilities in 17 states, reported assets of $15 billion, and the mission to “nurture the healing ministry of the Church” and be guided by “fidelity to the Gospel...(and) to the sanctity of life "from the moment of conception until death," a defense of life that "encompasses the unborn.”
